First Weekend of Summer!

I am happy to announce that the first weekend of summer was a success!
The cherries on our trees are starting to get some color, the dog gets to play fetch in the sun, and my jalapenos are starting to grow.

My small town is home to an amazing butterfly garden. They have tons of tropical butterflies and flowers in their green house. So many really pretty colors. Unfortunately Butterfly Bob is retiring so we made sure we made it out there before they shut the doors forever.
They also have a reptile room, that houses this big ass snake. This big ass snake fell of his creepy little perch while I was in the small reptile room, and I'm pretty sure I peed a little.
To make sure I fully recovered from the trauma of the big ass snake, I got myself a pedicure. Then the Mister and I sat out at the Social Security fishing hole and took in the beauty of our town, bald eagles and all. We also listened to all 8 minutes of Blinded By the Light (Old school style, sharing one set of head phones)

For Father's Day we headed over to my in-laws for BBQ and fresh strawberry pie.

How was your weekend?

That's super cool that you're surrounded by all that nature! Def not like that in LA. How much fun you must always have :)

Thanks so much for linking up with us!

Oh, I would have peed a lot if a big ass snake was anywhere within eyeshot. You totally deserved that pedi, girlfriend.

Thanks for linking up with us! Oh, and when those cherries turn bright red, feel free to send them on over to me. City living = no cherry trees.
